What does the future hold for...Kitson?

What does the future hold for...Kitson?

There can be few clubs with such a history of squad rotation as Pompey.

This summer, as with the past 2-3, I would suspect that 'most' will be wondering where their future lies.

Although unlike some other years some players under contract at least 'should' have a better chance of remaining where they are, as long as this is what they want!

If this is what they want, and it is a financially viable option for us, lets hope this is what they get...

#18 Dave Kitson

When he arrived I would be a liar if I said I was not delighted, as I was. For him and Liam Lawrence to both arrive from Stoke for Marc Wilson, who I have missed, and for us to get cash too was fantastic, or so I thought!

I soon got to thinking that I wish Kitson had failed to agree terms...

A lack of effort, interest and enthusiasm makes me furious. I would not care, so much, if he were not scoring so long as he grafted and did a lot less whinging than he does. There is a distinct lack of interest with him though, it seems.

If ever a man had dined off two good seasons, one at this level and one in the premier league, then Kitson - and some years back mind - has!

With another couple of years left on his contract we are stuck with him I reckon! So, Kitson's future - and perhaps the rest of his career - lies at Fratton...

    Good old poor Kits! I was delighted too to see him here, but he has faded, if you can say so! I wonder who would be willing to take him on board, but then again, we have taken him on, so there might be another crazy manager! Who knows!

    Looks like he will be here but IF we could rediscover his scoring form he would be a major asset. It is a big IF though.

    problem with Kitten is he has never kept up any continuity of goals through out a season hence both Reading and Stoke getting rid, no one is going to take him on current form, so my advice would be keep him for the next season, hopefully he will get his scoring boots on for the first three months- then off load in Janury window. too inefficient too ill disciplined and nothing is ever his fault.

    When you allow for the fact that he IS one that is sticking around, I just hope it's a damm good future

    With his past record, as Russell outlined, you have to query the wisdom of signing him in the first place.

    If only he used his strengths to his advantage and played up front he could be very dangerous at this level :|

    I don't think he's lazy. It's confidence with him. When he believes he'll score, he does. Unf he generally is convinced he'll miss. He's a good footballer and a good goal scorer. He just needs therapy. He reminds me of Scummer Beattie; rubbish then scores a few then rubbish then scores a few . . . . .

    Over and out?

    Noel Hunt's Pompey career could be over? A dislocated shoulder, at Hartlepool, means the former Southend man will not feature against Mansfield or Cheltenham.

    Burgess - we can go again in league one

    Christian Burgess, like the rest of us, is enjoying Pompey's promotion to league one BUT he's not content to settle at that level - he's already eyeing the Championship.

    Winger returns but full back on his way out?

    Ex-Chelsea & Walsall winger Lalkovic is back at Pompey, ahead of the proposed end to his Ross loan. Talbot looks as if his Blues days are numbered, a Chesterfield return is mooted?
